Unusual Rosette

This plant has a tightly packed rosette of basal leaves, about 10 inches across. The leaves are oddly bumpy, and glabrous on both sides.

Erodium sp

Doesn't seem to match.

RE: Unusual Rosette

My guess would be something in the mustard family. Looks like it might not be long before it starts flowering. Should be easier to ID then.

RE: Unusual Rosette

Yup. I always get excited and try to ID early, because I like to go back later if it's something good. But those early rascals can be difficult :). Thanks lycopus.

RE: Unusual Rosette

The shape and texture are reminiscent to me of a Senecio jacobaea which has had a dose of weedkiller. Is this a ridiculous notion?

Bottom right are some dead flower heads which look like Asteraceae. Are they associated with this plant or the one next to it?
